Would you pay me to write come Ocaml code please???

Of course it's possible. Flxcc is already processing template
free C++ (not correctly though). Sure it targets Felix at the moment
but I don't see any real issue targetting Ocaml.

To a large extent C++ is just syntactic sugar for C,
so what's the big deal? Exceptions are just about the only
really nasty feature, and wrappers can fix that easily
if you're willing to be a bit bloody minded about them.
